The Hollands are not listed as the landlord of the Marquess of Lorne in the 1888 Kellys , though it is just described as a beer retailer, and not named. This does not mean that they were not landlords immediately before or after the date of the survey for Kellys though. I do not have the Kellys for the year immediately before or after 1888 to check.

tca just to pick up on mikes last post....my dad was born in a pub in summer lane but his parents were not the landlords..they were just living there with his moms parents who ran the pub and so had a different surname...

I suggested tca should post what he knows here in the hope that you guys might be able to fill in any gaps and pad out what he already has with some addresses, offspring, etc. I shall try a bit of research myself but I don't have the resources that some of you have.
